|Ahrim the Blighted's quarterstaff.|
Being part of Ahrim's set, if the staff is wielded along with all of the other pieces of equipment in the set the player receives a special effect: successful attacks have a 20% chance of lowering the opponent's Strength by five levels. Wearing an amulet of the damned in addition to the entire set provides an extra effect: The staff gains the ability to cast Ancient Magicks, and any spell casted has a 25% chance of dealing 30% extra damage.
Ahrim's staff is not very popular due to the fact that it cannot autocast Ancient Magicks, it degrades and it is two-handed, meaning it cannot be used in conjunction with a book or shield. Most users of Ahrim's robes use an alternative staff such as the staff of the dead, which has better accuracy and damage output, is one-handed, and is non-degradable. The ancient staff is also a popular substitute because it is an affordable staff that can autocast Ancient Magicks.
